This riad is well situated on the parameter of the busy Marrakech medina. We arrived after 3 days in the desert to this beautiful oasis. It is hidden between a tire shop and a repair shop. Don't let that put you off - once through the doors you are in a luxurious boutique hotel. The staff was very welcoming and showed us around. There are 2 courtyards - one where lunch is served and one where breakfast is served. There are many alcoves where you can simply relax. The main pool is small (you could swim laps though) and the other is on the rooftop. Many of the rooms have rooftop terraces near the 2nd pool. Our junior suite (#21) was situated on the ground floor looking out over the courtyard near the larger pool. It was very private. While many of the riads in Marrakech are decorated in Moroccan motifs, our was very "euro" - alot of black, white and tans. There were 3 vases of fresh roses placed throughout our room. The bathroom was cavernous with many luxury touches. This is the type of place where service is exactly what you want - not overt but there when you need something - we had drinks in the afternoon around the pool and on the second day the staff already had remembered "our usual." When you leave to go out, they also have a deal with the Petit Taxi service - they negotiate your fare and you don't pay until you return to the hotel - ensuring that your cab will come back and get you! Our room included breakfast (whenever and wherever you wanted it), light lunch (but at 3 courses, I wouldn't call it light), laundry service and unlimited water and sodas from the mini-bar. The food was excellent. While on the expensive side, this is well worth the splurge.
